The Veterans Advisory Committee (VAC) was established by County Resolution #79-214 (superseded by Resolution #2001-322) to:

  • Keep the Board of Supervisors informed of problems affecting veterans and advising the Board of appropriate action to resolve such problems.
  • Help unify veterans groups in the overall interest of all veterans of Riverside County.
  • Serve as the basic support group for the Riverside National Cemetery.
  • Assist in the orderly return of veterans to civilian life by protecting their rights while they are uniform.
  • Advise and assist the County Veterans’ Service Office in the rehabilitation of veterans through existing employment services, education, insurance, housing and hospitalization programs and other veterans benefits.
  • Act as a liaison between veterans and county government in conjunction with the Veterans' Service Officer.
